Recognized for generations by its familiar yellow cover, America’s best loved annual and oldest continuously published periodical (now in its 223rd year!) promises to be “useful, with a pleasant degree of humor,” thus once again both fulfilling the mission set forth by its founder Robert B. Thomas and readers’ expectations.
Recognized for generations by its familiar yellow cover, The Old Farmers Almanac is back for 2014 with its signature mix of timeless wisdom and timely predictions. Chock-full of useful information and classic wit, this edition features home hints, garden advice, fascinating facts, tips for outdoors enthusiasts, and recipes, plus its famous 80 percent accurate weather forecasts. (Using a secret formula based on sunspots, weather patterns and meteorology, the almanac points to a milder-than-normal winter in the southwestern half of the country, with a warmer-than-normal summer in most areas, except the heartland and the Southeast.) The Old Farmers Almanac is one of America’s favorite traditions!
